This 1800 HP Chevrolet Corvette C7 Will Give You The Creeps

This sinister-looking C7 Corvette Z06 features sequential gears, gigantic turbo, and spits flames like an active volcano

When it comes to modified cars, the main goal seems to be high horsepower. However, having a well-sorted car means building it to send that power to the ground, as efficiently as possible. With this in mind, That Racing Channel (TRC) is giving us a YouTube video of one such car – a sinister-looking C7 Corvette, which may be one of the most well-sorted high-horsepower builds, you will ever see.

Nevertheless, we managed to uncover some details about it.

Emilia Hartford No Longer Has The Most Powerful C8 Corvette

The FuelTech C8 Corvette dethrones Emilia Hartford’s C8. It boasts more Power and a quicker Quarter-mile Time

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is one of the most desired sports cars on sale today. So much so that GM is having difficulties keeping up with demand. The C8 is the first mid-engine Corvette to make it to production and, even before the arrival of any performance versions, the new platform has already proven to be very capable. Speaking of performance, ever since YouTuber Emilia Hartford built her own twin-turbo C8 “Vette” – the most powerful one in the world – we knew the race was on. And now, someone else has built an even more powerful one.

GM Greed: No Assistance To Aftermarket Tuners Trying to Crack Open the C8 Corvette

GM Greed: No Assistance To Aftermarket Tuners Trying to Crack Open the C8 Corvette

GM has no intention of helping aftermarket tuners make the C8 better

The Chevy C8 Corvette is officially one of the most un-tunable vehicles on the road today. It’s not because it’s already powerful enough or because mechanical engineering prevents it. And, the C8 can be tuned to some extent, such as throwing in a bolt-on supercharger, for example, or however this record-breaking C8 Corvette managed to reach 1,000 horsepower. But, in terms of conventional tuning, aka, ECU remapping, tuners are essentially out of luck and probably will be for some time to come unless someone manages to crack the code.

SVE Unveils the 700-Horsepower Yenko Silverado That Chevy Won’t Built

SVE first revived the Syclone, then built an 800-horsepower Silverado, and has now come up with a 700-horsepower V-8 Silverado

SVE has been associated with GM for a very long time. In over three decades, the aftermarket company has tuned over 65,000 vehicles. SVE made headlines when it revived the Syclone badge for Canyon-based 2019 and 2021 models.

The company even builds Silverado-based Yenko S/C editions. The company released an 800-horsepower version of the truck last year. Now, it has come up with a 710-horsepower iteration of this Yenko S/C called the California Edition. It will be available across the Silverado trim line and will be limited to just 50 examples.

That Moment Your Chevy C8 Corvette Is Too Fast For The Drag Strip

That Moment Your Chevy C8 Corvette Is Too Fast For The Drag Strip

This C8 Corvette is a sub-10-second car, and hence, was kicked out of the race!

The ultimate purpose of racing on a drag strip is to see how quick and fast your car is. The quicker the car, the better it is. But, did you know that being too fast could get you kicked out of the drag strip? Well, the world’s fastest Chevy C8 Corvette was booted from the LS Fest because it was too fast. There’s more than meets the eye, but at the onset, this is exactly what happened.

Lingenfelter is here with a supercharger kit to make your Blazer ownership a little more exciting

Indiana-based Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, known for its GM builds, has come up with a package for the Blazer that turns it into a powerful SUV. It includes the supercharger that adds almost 150 horses to the V-6’s stock power output. There are some exterior mods as well, but they are quite subtle and won’t look suspiciously different in a crowd. It’s still no performance SUV, but it will make the Blazer look a little more desirable.

The new Callaway Silverado Signature Edition is the latest example. This big, burly truck with a V-8 engine has enough power and mechanical tech to beat even the Chevy Camaro in a straight-line race. Oh, what a sight that must be!

This Company Will Turn Your Chevrolet Corvette C8 Into A Hot Supercar (Or Speedster)

Is the Corvette C8 too dull for you? Dany Bahar will fix it and throw in a more powerful V-8

Chevrolet finally took the mid-engined road with the Corvette for the eighth-generation, but the American two-door is not exactly a supercar. Upcoming versions might take the nameplate there in terms of performance, but the Corvette C8 looks a bit dull in the current configuration. If you’re happy with the platform and the naturally aspirated V-8, but you want a more exotic design, the folks over at ARES Design, a company founded by Dany Bahar, are here to help.

Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06 Champion by Callaway - The Ultimate Track-Focused C7

The Corvette C7 may be discontinued, but Callaway still makes it in various forms

Callaway Cars has been modifying Chevrolet Corvettes for more than 30 years now. But what you might not know is that Callaway has also been building and racing Corvettes for 25 years, as well as importing them to European countries like Germany.

To celebrate a quarter century of doing that, Callaway Competition created the Champion Edition, a beefed-up Corvette that features many race-bred parts. But it’s not based on the current C8. If you’re a fan of the previous, front-engined C7, you’re in luck because the Champion Edition is an upgraded Corvette C7 Z06.

Chevrolet C8 Corvette by Extreme Turbo Systems

Chevrolet C8 Corvette by Extreme Turbo Systems

This Turbocharged C8 Corvette Is Just As Powerful as a Lamborghini Aventador S

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is awesome in it of itself. With 495 horsepower on tap in the Z51 guise, the 2020 Vette can set a blistering pace, taking only three seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph. So if a 495-horsepower Corvette C8 Z51 is already capable of such speeds, imagine what a 736-horsepower Corvette C8 is capable of when it goes under the tuning ringer.

Extreme Turbo Systems — the name says it all — recently worked on a bone stock Corvette C8 Z51 with the goal of raising its power to supercar levels. The tuning firm even released a video of the Vette C8 strapped to a dyno rig, undergoing serious testing. The video isn’t particularly exciting, but make no mistake about it, this Corvette C8 Z51 isn’t your typical 2020 Corvette. You might even say that this Vette can give the Lamborghini Aventador S a serious run for its money.

Callaway Is Working on a Body Kit for the C8 Chevy Corvette, And You'll Probably Want It!

Callaway Is Working on a Body Kit for the C8 Chevy Corvette, And You’ll Probably Want It!

Callaway Cars is arguably one of the most recognizable American specialty manufacturer in the business today. It’s been around since 1977, and in the 43 years that it’s been around, the company has been responsible for a lot of builds, programs, and projects, including its main series of projects, all of which are identified with a “C,” followed by a specific project number. The most recent of these projects was the C21 Aerowagen, a coach-built shooting brake version of the Chevrolet Corvette C7 that was launched in 2017.

This introduction is important because Callaway is in the process of building a special program for the all-new Corvette C8. It’s unclear if this project will be identified as the “C22,” but it remains no less significant in part due to the Corvette C8’s status as the first-ever mid-engine Corvette in the nameplate’s long and illustrious history. For now, the program isn’t close to being completed, but that didn’t stop Callaway from previewing a few of the program’s more notable items, including a new generation of the company’s famed “Double-D” exhaust system. There’s more to this program than the exhaust, and, needless to say, we can’t wait for what Callaway has in store for the mighty Corvette C8.

Watch a 4,000-Horsepower Corvette Defy Gravity on the Drag Strip

The perils of a 4,000-horsepower drag car come in full view

Anytime you’re driving a car that’s carrying an engine with 4,000 horsepower on tap, you better be ready for the consequences that come with that kind of insanity. Driver Daniel Pharris found this out first-hand when the obscenely tricked-out Chevrolet Corvette C7 that he was driving went completely vertical during a drag race event at the Tulsa Raceway Park.

Fortunately, Pharris escaped the harrowing ordeal with all of his appendages intact. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the C7 as parts of the car literally tore off when its nose pointed to the sky. If you didn’t know what a 4,000-horsepower drag car is capable of, this video is a good example on why you shouldn’t take these cars lightly.

Fabspeed Can Make Your 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette Sound and Perform As It Was Meant To

A custom exhaust can do amazing things for the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette

It took five decades for the Chevy Corvette to transition into the fabled mid-engined car that a lot of people would argue it was always meant to be. But, the C8 generation turned that fable into reality, and the C8 Corvette is the most exotic looking car to ever come from Chevy. It hasn’t been on the road for very long, but aftermarket tuners are starting to work their magic, and this custom exhaust from Fabspeed could be exactly what the doctor ordered.

2020 Chevrolet Camaro SC630 by Callaway - Near ZL1 Power $10k Cheaper

Beef up your Chevy Camaro at a more affordable price

The 2020 Callaway SC630 is an upgrade to the Chevrolet Camaro performed by Callaway Cars, an engineering company that’s been offering drivetrain upgrades for Chevrolets since the 1980s. The SC630 package revolves around supercharging the 6.2-liter V-8 offered in the sixth-generation Camaro and it’s available for the LT1, 1SS, and 2SS trims. Although exterior and interior add-ons are minimal, the supercharger increases the engine’s power from 455 to 630 horsepower. The SC630 is thus almost as powerful as the Camaro ZL1,but it comes at a notably more affordable price.
